Happy July 4th! Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

Marquis de Lafayette toasts General Washington in front of the Golden Plough Tavern in the Nation's first capital, York PA. Note his PSU Track Alumni wrist band prominently displayed on his glass. This toast helped end the Conway Cabal, an effort to end George Washington's leadership of the nation's army. The Frenchman helped keep Washington in charge at a time quite critical to our fledgling nation. Fireworks worthy indeed, and a Frenchman to boot!

This will represent my entry in the contest, as I would love to have the golden golf ball for myself. Anyone think I shouldn't be allowed to enter?

Happy July 4th to all, both those on the Left and the Right. If you think partisan bickering is new, just re-read the fight to replace the Articles of Confederation with the US Constitution. And raise your glass to Ben Franklin, always my favorite Founding Father.
